Skip to comments.Teabaggers Part Deux (Lib Seattle Colunist)

This column is a little inflammatory...
Last week, in this space, I appear to have awakened a movement larger than the one I achieved prior to my last colonoscopy. Who could have thought that government resentful "teabaggers" existed here in the rain forests of the Puget Sound?
After my recent personal encounter with these activists in the other Washington, I imagined that they were simply part of the extensive production capability of FOX News. Who would have thunk that they are very much alive and well and reading blogs here at Seattlepi.com?
It would appear at first glance that my experiences with the East Coast tribes of the Tea Party movement did not achieve much sympathy with the local chapters. Perhaps if I possessed the good looks and moneyed style of Sarah Palin I might have been greeted as a liberator and party functionary. Apparently, my "good looks" do not meet the standards of some of you. In some of the now-deleted comments on last week's installment, readers made it quite clear that my looks were not even close to the standards of Flip Wilson's "Geraldine" or even Milton Berle.

Someone who knows the concept empirically and practices it.
What ever you do....dont Google for her picture.
Thanks for the tip !!!
Cuz that’s exactly what I thought of doing
And then I thought, might be scary ....
Perhaps my spider sense was right ????
Who woulda thunk it?
Wasnt it Anderson Cooper who cast the slur teabagger on the tea party patriots?”
Yep. He and David Gergen sniggered about it (and, I guess they are experts on the practice) and touched off a whole line of smutty propaganda.
The semi-literate Left don't read the news. Their belief system is constructed from slogans, sound bites and bumper stickers. The Bush tax cuts lowered the tax rate of any American paying taxes. The deficit increased due to uncontrolled spending.
I call BS. Judging from the excerpt, had Barbara had a movement that large before her colonoscopy, she would have died from brain loss.
Jeez you guys on FR make me laugh out loud.
Do you think she had much of a brain before it went flying out the other end?
What kind of person uses such an image in a political article? Weird.
And I thought good the suggestion :
please explain to us just what a teabagger is, and why it applies. Explain in detail.
All we thought is that we were like the original patriotic Boston Tea Party protesting high taxes ........ why do you have such a problem with that?
Why does it make you vicious and obscene?
How much taxes must we pay? Is it ever enough???
I await her reply.
Well put. I've seen a lot of that lately. Some editor at CNN recently did a piece, for instance.
"The trouble with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people's money" - Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher
OK, now I have a visual to attach to the viral thought of hours spent on the toilet prepping for a colonoscopy. Thanks.
See my tagline!
The only truthfulness I could glean from the whole article was she is upset that people dont find her pretty enough. The rest was just a pretense of being political commentary.
“Gee, shes telling us about whats inside her butt ... how graceful.”
Based on her obvious lack of vision, I’d say it’s her head that’s stuck up there...
And while we’re at it, why don’t conservatives come up with some nasty smutty derogatory name for liberas/progressives? Well, actually, I do know why. It’s because conservatives, for the most part, have better manners than to call people they disagree with a nasty name. But liberals love to swear and use filty language: it helps to show everyone how liberal they are with the english language.
Wow. Maybe if you could better write the opinions of you, it would approve more people of you.
With a stick? or a brick?
Gee, shes telling us about whats inside her butt ... how graceful.
Based on her obvious lack of vision, Id say its her head thats stuck up there...
Have you ever seen a liberal react when you call one a Socialist?
Credit goes to Michelle Malkin for that term, by the way. I was very taken with it myself.
No, but it’s best to be nice or they’ll ban me. Har.
I got that idea when Anderson Cooper and Wolf Blitzer were having a hearty laugh at the “teabagger” joke. Sorry I don’t get out enough for ya.
